“Several prominent Yankees” to be named

I guess that rules out Carl Pavano and Shelley Duncan.

ESPN reports today that Roger Clemens’ trainer is ratting him out. He spoke to the Mitchell investigation and reportedly gave Clemens steroids while Clemens was in New York and before. He went on to say that there will be several prominent Yankees named in the report.

Perhaps it is only a coincidence that Alex Rodriguez saw his contract finalized yesterday. Maybe A-Rod was nervous about being named, and wanted his deal done quickly, so he went around Boras to get the deal done. Then again, if this Yankee trainer was looking to cash in this morning, and he had supplied A-Rod, that would be the bigger bombshell.

So far, in all the guessing games and lists floating around the internet there have been no Indians aside from Betancourt and Byrd, who both had tested positive before. Rafael served his suspension, and for the record denies that what he took was any type of steroid. We’ll have to wait and see like the rest of the country.

Here is an excellent recap of players that have already been linked, tested positive, or admitted to using steroids or HGH. That list totals 64 players. If the Mitchell report contains only these names… what a waste of everybody’s time.

  1. This press conference is every bit as boring as trying to read this 400 page PDF file of the report. Talk about overkill.

    I wish they would just give us the names in a list format.

  2. Mitchell just played the “I brokered peace in Ireland, and nobody has done it since, so I better be taken seriously” card. Priceless.

  3. Gee, I thought by ‘several prominent Yankees’ they meant several prominent Yankess who have played in the last 5 years or so. Or at least ones we didn’t already know about.

  4. Yeah, Chuck Knoblauch wasn’t exactly who I had in mind.
